samdhaana yoga breathing techniques

Three Part Breath (or Dirga Pranayama) is a simple and feel good breath technique, or pranayama, that helps to reduce stress in the body by turning off the stress response through mindful diaphragmatic breathing. It also stimulates all the organs held in the torso as you draw the breath into all parts of the torso, allowing rich prana to fill the organ body and nourish cells. The inhales feed our system and the exhales carry out waste, toxins and things that no longer serve us. This breath technique or pranayama is very grounding and calming to our body, and is a great way to start your day or end your day.  This video will explain and demonstrate how to do 3 Part Breath. You may also review written instructions here. If you are already familiar with it, you may want to view the video below (Do 3 Part Breath) instead.

Duration: Approximately 9 minutes
